“Lipner is fully in command of his instruments, with improvisations that swing perfectly. His note placement on vibes and marimba is ideal...a tight, cohesive group that performs flawlessly..."  Cadence Magazine

“Lipner tempers his harmonic adventurousness and rhythmic drive with just the right balance to serve the music...Exemplifies how well mallet percussion works in a variety of contemporary settings.”  
Percussive Notes

“With originals and surprising covers, Lipner floats, rings, and slams as he makes his travels. It’s a “gentle force” which describes a lot of the best Brazilian music...While this cd stands on the “contemporary” side of the jazz fence, it does not have the “sterile” sound the style is often accused of.” Jazz Improv magazine

“Portraits blends World Music and Jazz in unique, ear-pleasing ways...”  Cdnow.com
